From the Superintendent

I believe that one of the most promising opportunities in education right now is the potential to help our girls and boys be better connected to the world of knowledge through technology. When I was a district superintendent, I would have loved to see my students and teachers enjoy the almost limitless access to information and the highly interactive learning technologies that have become available in just the last few years.

That’s why I’m excited about the new Ohio eTextbook Pilot, a $6 million grant program to help schools buy digital educational materials and professional development resources.

From the Superintendent

We are moving another step closer to having our students ready for the Next Generation of Assessments in spring 2015. As of today, teachers and students can see sample items in math and English language arts and complete those items on the same technology platform they’ll be using in 2015. Students also can see training tests in science and social studies. Using these resources will help teachers and students feel more comfortable when it’s time to take the actual exams. Students will not receive scores for the sample items or training tests. 

For more details on how to access all of these resources, see the two items immediately following this letter.
